Food Politics
Here we examine the implications of globalisation to the production of food, how our food gets to the table and at what cost to us and our environment.  Once an understanding of global food politics is reached we are better armed to choose more sustainable sources of supply, and at the same time help get the the third world out of poverty and reduce our burden on the planet.



PLANEAT is the story of three men's life-long search for a diet, which is good for our health, good for the environment and good for the future of the planet. With an additional cast of pioneering chefs and some of the best cooking you have ever seen, the scientists and doctors in the film present a convincing case for the West to re-examine its love affair with meat and dairy. The film features the ground-breaking work of Dr. T Colin Campbell in China exploring the link between diet and disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn's use of diet to treat heart disease patients, and Professor Gidon Eshel's investigations into how our food choices contribute to global warming, land use and oceanic deadzones. www.planeat.tv
